SU Tank-killer Battery Assembly Guide The SU-85M was a stopgap measure created due to a shortage of 100mm guns. Therefore, vehicles that were destined to become SU-100s were fitted with 85mm guns until production of the 100mm gun could catch up, giving us the SU-85M.

Assembling the SU-85M requires simply replacing the 100mm gun of our already assembled SU-100 with the 85mm version instead. The 85mm gun in question can be seen highlighted in green on the hull frame.
